How can you trim the in-memory size of the JMF (Java Media Framework) if you are only interested in one part of the functionality (e.g., sound support).

There isn't much you can do, but things probably aren't as bad as you think.

There are probably very few java class images in memory that aren't necessary, as the JVM loads classes on an as-needed basis. If you're not referring to other parts of the JMF, then they're mostly not in memory.
